Free Knitted Dishcloth Patterns

I've been busy making dishcloths. They're a great hostess gift when visiting friends. Roll up a few and put a bow around them.

These are also a good way to get started if you are new to knitting.

These are all 7" x 9" but will shrink to 7" x 7". If you want them longer, knit more rows.

I used Peaches & Cream cotton yarn from Walmart which was cheaper than cotton yarn at some of the hobby stores.

Needle size: U.S. 6, 4mm, or UK 8

Pattern 1
Dishcloth Pattern 1
Cast on 30 stitches

Border: Knit 10 rows (if you prefer, use seed stitch/moss stitch for the borders)

Pattern Row 1: Knit
Pattern Row 2: Knit 5, purl 20, knit 5

Repeat rows 1 and 2 until dishcloth measures 7"

Knit 10 rows
Cast off



Pattern 2 (basket weave)
Dishcloth Pattern 2 - basket weave 
Cast on 30 stitches

Border: Knit 10 Rows

Pattern row 1: Knit 5 (purl 5, knit 5) repeat until last five stitches, knit
Pattern row 2: Knit 5 (knit 5, purl 5) repeat until last five stitches, knit

Repeat rows 1 and  2, two more times

Pattern row 3: Knit 5 (knit 5, purl 5) repeat until last five stitches, knit
Pattern row 4: Knit 5 (purl 5, knit 5) repeat until last five stitches, knit

Repeat rows 3 and 4, two more times

You will now have a basket weave pattern on your needles. Repeat until dishcloth measures 7"

Border: Knit 10 rows
Cast off

Pattern 3 (mock cable)
Dishcloth Pattern 3 - mock cable
Cast on 32 stitches

Border: Knit 10 rows

Row 1 (right side): Knit 5, purl 2, (sl 1 purlwise, knit 2, pass slip stitch over 2 stitches on needle, purl 2) repeat to last five stitches, knit 5
Row 2: Knit 7, (purl 1, yarn around needle to make a stitch, purl 1, knit 2) repeat to last five stitches, knit 5
Row 3: Knit 5, purl 2 (knit 3, purl 2) repeat to last five stitches, knit 5
Row 4: Knit 5, knit 2 (purl 3, knit 2)  repeat to last five stitches, knit 5

Repeat until 7" in length ending with row 2

Border: Knit 10 rows
